Invasion scenes Europe: British troops. Possibly France.
Various shots of British soldiers driving past on tanks in countryside (possibly France). M/Ss and C/Us of soldier sitting down washing his feet in bowl. L/Ss of convoy of tanks and Red Cross vehicles. Shots of military vehicles moving through streets of destroyed town. M/S of soldiers standing next to battered sign "SONSBECK". L/Ss of destroyed buildings. Wounded person being carried on a stretcher by members of the Red Cross. Several shots of tanks moving through the town.
*NB: A website user has informed us that signposts in the film indicate that parts of it were shot in Udemmerbruch and Sonsbeck, Germany. It was probably shot in the first week of March 1945 and most of the armoured vehicles in the film have the "45" tactical sign which is the insignia of an armoured reconnaissance regiment.
The only Commonwealth armoured reconnaissance regiment in these two German towns in early March 1945 was the South Alberta Regiment of the 4th Canadian Armoured Division.
Note; apparently signposts in the film indicate that parts of it were shot in Udemmerbruch and Sonsbeck, Germany.
